Host a Sanctioned Tournament

During each basketball season, Ontario Basketball sanctions approximately 400 tournaments hosted by affiliated member clubs. The purpose of tournaments being sanctioned by Ontario Basketball is to ensure that the tournament hosts agree to and abide by all of Ontario Basketball’s rules and policies so that all participating teams experience a standard that meets Ontario Basketball guidelines.

To have your tournament sanctioned, please:

  1. Review the 2023-24 Sanctioning Guidelines Manual (coming soon).
  2. Confirm tournament approval with the local officiating board.
  3. Pay the Sanctioned Tournament Host Fee through our online store.
  4. Complete the Google Document. Once your Google Document submission is approved, your tournament will be listed publicly here.

Tournaments must be properly sanctioned in order for Ontario Basketball insurance to be valid.

Note: The process to host a sanctioned tournament is different from the process to host an exhibition game.
